Celebration will feature thousands of events all across the country

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. (June 07, 2013) – National School Choice Week, an independent public awareness campaign dedicated to shining a spotlight on effective education options for all children, will take place from Jan. 26 until Feb. 1, 2014, organizers announced today.

The fourth-annual school choice celebration will feature thousands of independently planned events all across the country, including rallies, roundtable discussions, house parties, film screenings, and discussion groups. The celebration is nonpartisan and nonpolitical.

"Every child deserves a quality education regardless of their zip code, family income, or learning ability," said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. "Anyone can host a National School Choice Week event – however large or small – and participate alongside hundreds of organizations, thousands of schools, and millions of individuals."

National School Choice Week 2013 took place this past January, featured 3,600 events and generated more than 2,000 positive news stories. 29 governors and 19 mayors officially proclaimed the week "National School Choice Week" in their respective states and cities.

National School Choice Week is comprised of parents, students, educators, civic leaders, and community members, and raises awareness about all forms of school choice, including high-achieving traditional public schools, public charter schools, private schools, virtual and online schools, magnet schools, and home schooling.
